  • 1 Dreyer's chocolate ice cream, 48 oz.

  • 3 Hershey's milk chocolate bars, 5 oz.
  • 2 9" serving platters


  1. Prepare the chocolate devil's food cake mix according to the mixing instructions on the box.
  2. Divide the cake batter into 2 - 8" round cake pans.
  3. Bake cake according to baking instructions on the box.
  4. Remove the cakes from the oven and invert onto a wax paper lined flat surface.
  5. Allow the cakes to cool completely for about 2 hours.
  6. Remove the cake pans from the cakes and cut each cake into 2 even layers.
  7. Place the bottom of the two layers back into the cake pan.
  8. Open the top of the ice cream and cut the ice cream container off, carefully.
  9. Cut the ice cream in half and gently press each half of the ice cream into the cake pans.
  10. Spread the ice cream into an even layer.
  11. Place the top layer of the cake on top of the ice cream and freeze for 1 hour.
  12. Once the ice cream has frozen solid, remove one cake at a time from the freezer to defrost.
  13. Prepare a large bowl of hot water and dip the cake pan into the water to loosen the ice cream cake from the cake pan.
  14. Flip the cake over onto the serving platter.
  15. Frost the entire cake with the Cool Whip and place the cake back into the freezer.
  16. Repeat this process with the second cake.
  17. Using a vegetable peeler shave the chocolate bars into chocolate curls.
  18. Place the curls into a container and then into the freezer to harden for about 5 minutes.
  19. Gently press the chocolate curls into the Cool Whip frosting around and top of the cakes.
  20. Keep the cakes frozen until about 30 minutes before eating.
  21. Buy ice cream from the store the day you are planning to make the Chocolate Ice Cream Dream cake and store in freezer while you bake the cake.
  22. If you are using ice cream that has been kept in your home freezer for more than a day, you may need more time to soften ice cream so you can work with it.
